Not at all. I actually was referring to Keith's situation, if he didn't want to pay for two DDRC-88A. My 10x10 HD is just for sub use these days.

Not sure I'd ditch the center in an Atmos setup, depending on how you feel about a hard center vs. a phantom center for movies dialogue. It's your choice though about...
